KMIL is the winner of Business of the Month for December!
KMIL 105.1 The Ranch has been serving as Cameron's radio station since 1955! It is locally owned, and was licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1955 as an AM band. In recent decades it transitioned into Frequency Modulation (FM) and provides local, high quality hometown radio programming, production and broadcasting. KMIL covers not only Milam County, but Bell, Falls, Robertson, Williams, Lee and Burleson. They are known as KMIL 105.1 The Ranch, Super Star Country radio station.
KMIL has been a family owned enterprise since 1961 when longtime radio host Gene Smitherman purchased interest in the station, and in the 1980’s had full ownership. Gene Smitherman became famous with his character “Silas Strausburger” and you can still listen to “ The Book of Silas” at 8:45 weekdays on The Breakfast Club with Joe and Rose. Joe Smitherman followed his father and is currently the owner and radio personality Joe on The Breakfast Club . Brent Eberhart is the currently the manager of KMIL.
KMIL has been a huge support to the community through its many broadcasts and programming, including all Yoemen sports, local events and up to date weather and news stories, not only over the air, but on their website as well. In its nomination for this award, it was stated that, "This radio station could not function without the involvement of its audience and advertisers, it is all about the community." We appreciate the passion KMIL has for the community, and their support and willingness to serve as a voice for Cameron. The community is extremely grateful for all of the hard work that this radio station puts into supporting it, and though it may go unnoticed or unrecognized, we would like to spotlight this local business this month! Congratulations to KMIL!
